    Default Newbie help ~ Warcraft


    Hi all,

    I installed and unintalled Wine originally from the software add-on
    (Yast) and I deleted away the WarcraftIII folder cos I do it wrongly.

    I found some guide and read Wine forum but still couldn;t understand
    how it works.

    can some one teach me?

    There are too many patch/version of wine and i don;t know which is the
    correct one.

    In the community repositories is a Wine repository. Enable that and then
    install via the software manager. You will have the latest Wine.

    If you are installing some software with Wine the default installation
    patch is

    Code:
    --------------------

    CProgram Files\

    --------------------

    This means that the program will be installed to

    Code:
    --------------------

    /home/<userName>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/

    --------------------

    Wine need to detect your drive. In konsole type:

    Code:
    --------------------

    winecfg

    --------------------

    Here select the Drives tab. Hit the add button and select the patch for
    your DVD drive.

    Take your Warcraft III CD into the drive. Check that it is mounted (you
    can browse the content of the CD in a filemanager). Go again to winecfg
    Driver tab, and hit the Autodetect button.
    Try to start Warcraft now.

    ps.: the same thing can happen if you are using some copy of the
    original Warcraft III CD

    Or get yourself a copy of the no-CD patched exe file so you don't need
    the original CD after installation.
